Weekend Update: 6/2/13

Man, we packed a lot of stuff into this weekend! And it was a good time.

Smoothies are no longer safe in our house. Luke LOVES straws – and smoothies!

Got a new pair of SKORA running shoes and took them for a 5 mile run on Friday. And taught BODYPUMP in them too!

Helper at Target.

Abby either just woke up or is about to go back to sleep. .. 

On Saturday we headed up to the cities. . .

1st up: garage sale at River Hills. It is a huge neighborhood wide garage sale – with about 75 sales all within walking distance of each other. We were there for about 3 hours! Got a new stroller and some Luke clothes.


Laura and Tom drove up from Eau Claire to hang out with us for the day.

Score – spreader for just $1!!

The highlight of River Hills is the sweet corn. So so so good!!

What a difference a year makes. . .

Last year. .. at River Hills – same bench!


And this year!


After a quick stop at Cane’s for some chicken fingers and a difference of opinion on their awesome sauce.  .. we headed to the MN Zoo! IMG_4403IMG_4409

And after going going going all day without a nap. . . Luke finally succumbed in the new stroller we bought at the garage sale! $5 –> score! IMG_4410

And Tom and I spent too much time and had too much fun touching the sharks in Discovery Bay!!


Then, our day of fun continued! We went to dinner with Scott’s parents (Way and Lee) and Scott’s brother and girlfriend (Adam and Ashley) at Red Robin – YUM!


And then back to the house for bath time, jammies, presents (celebrating my birthday – and again – you guys were all way too generous!), and cookie cake!!


Sunday was filled with laundry, the grocery store, and lots of time outside in the sunshine.. . including a jogging stroller record of 7 miles!

The view during my run. . .

Luke likes to reach up and try to hold my hand during the run.. . IMG_4428

And being Dad’s helper outside!


What a great weekend!! What were you up to??

  2. Sounds like a fun, jam-packed weekend! Happy Birthday! We had fun meeting new friends at the splashpad, enjoying FroYo, running a mile race with my 3 y/o & track club picnic. Have to brag – my daughter SMASHED the TN state record, running a 10:12 mile. She’s my hero!
